Groups Childbirth Preparation Courses 

Private Hypnobirthing  childbirth preparation course 

This course is a program that considers the psychological, as well as the physical, well-being of the mother, her birth partner, and the newborn, independent of context, whether that be in the quiet of a home, a hospital, or a birth center.

This course includes special breathing, relaxation, visualization, meditative practice, attention to nutrition, and positive body toning.  

Classes will cover the following:

  • The physiology of birth and how to make those birth hormones work for you.

  • The different stages of labor, what to expect, and breathing techniques to support you through each stage. 

  • The role of your nervous system in birth, the impact of fear in labor and the power of the mind.

  • What are surges, why they are essential for birthing and how to maximize the cocktail of hormones we need to labor.

  • How to use self-relaxation, hypnosis and deepening techniques during pregnancy, and prepare you body and mind for birth. 

  • Addressing and letting go of fears and / or limiting thoughts.

  • The power of visualizations and affirmations in the birth process.

  • Relaxation, massage and self-hypnosis techniques.

  • The preparation of your birth preferences, the options available and what is important to you?
